A prominent pro-democracy group in Hong Kong known for its yearly vigil commemorating the 1989 Tiananmen Square crackdown is headed for closure, local media reported Tuesday.

The standing committee of the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements of China has passed a resolution to disband amid mounting suppression from the authorities, according to the reports.

An emergency general meeting will be held among its members to officially vote on whether the group will end its 32-year-run.

Last month, the group terminated all its workers and reduced its standing committee by half, citing political suppression.

On June 4, the alliance's vice chairwoman Tonyee Chow was arrested on suspicion of promoting the annual vigil, which was banned by authorities for the second consecutive year due to public health concerns during the coronavirus pandemic.

The alliance is the latest organization to fold under Beijing's efforts to crack down on dissent in the city following the implementation of the national security law, which criminalizes acts of secession, subversion, terrorism and collusion with foreign forces.

Earlier this month, Hong Kong's biggest protest group announced its closure just three days after the city's largest pro-democracy teachers' union disbanded, citing "unprecedented severe challenges."
